Guaranteed Accuracy - More Deductions - Less Frustration
RHODES-MURPHY offers free e-File to all of our clients
. The experts
at RHODES-MURPHY have been accepted into the electronic filing program called "Authorized
IRS e-file Providers." We are the Electronic Return Originator (ERO) who transmits
your tax return information to the IRS.
How does all of this work?
We prepare your tax return. You sign your electronic tax return by either using
a Self-Select PIN for e-file for a completely paperless return, or by signing Form
8453. After you sign the return using a Self-Select PIN or Form 8453, we transmit
the return to the IRS. Once received at the IRS, the return is automatically checked
by computers for errors and missing information. If it cannot be processed, it is
sent back to us to clarify any necessary information. Within 48 hours of electronically
sending your return to IRS, the IRS sends an acknowledgment to RHODES-MURPHY stating
the return is accepted for processing. This is your proof of filing and assurance
that the IRS has your return information.
If due a refund, you can expect to receive it in approximately three to four weeks from
the acknowledgment date - even faster with Direct Deposit (half the time as when
filed on paper). If you owe tax, we have options to assist you as well. As the client,
you must pay the preparation fees up-front, before the return can be e-filed.IRS
e-file returns are virtually error-proof with an error rate of less than one percent.
